Art Wednesday: Books and reading
|Books by Holly Farrell - yes, this is a painting not a photograph|
2012 is the National Year of the BOOK (Australia) and as I am a lover of books I thought it was important to do a Art Wednesday that celebrated BOOKS. So here is a selection of artworks that involve books or that most wonderful past-time . . . reading.
I love books and have wasted many many hours of my life reading. I read when I should have been studying, I read when I should be sleep, I read when I should be working . . . there is nothing quite like reading and I couldn't imagine a life without books. I doubt I will ever have enough time in my life to read all the books I would love to read.
“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! -- When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.”
